Researchers from PandaLabs have spotted yet another malware piece, a Microsoft themed ransomware variant. Once you get infected, it will show you the following screen:
The ransomware locks down the infected victim’s PC and demands a 100 EURO payment to Microsoft Corporation for unlocking it as Microsoft cannot verify the authenticity of the Windows installation. The ransomware threatens to send their IP to the district attorney’s office citing piracy violations, unless the victim pays 100 Euro within 48 hours.
Well, for all of you that wouldn’t like to pay anything to these frauds, the unlock key is currently detected as Ransom.AN is QRT5T5FJQE53BGXT9HHJW53YT
